Both have yet to deserve to be reckoned civilised through and through to my eyes. The legendary soccer champ Christiano Ronaldo ought to have felt, as I see it, ashamed that he happens to be disgustingly wealthier* than a Nobelist** whose work ( i.e. contribution to medicine, economics, environment-friendly technology, or world peace ) has empowered humanity and led to the progress and development of human civilisation worldwide. To my utter astonishment, the latter finds nothing wrong with such silly things.
*' Ronaldo tops Forbes list as world’s highest-paid athlete — With earnings of $88 million, Real Madrid and Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo has topped Forbes' list of the highest-paid athletes for 2016. Ronaldo earned $88 million in the last 12 months ' ( http://theinterpreternow.blogspot.in/20 … orlds.html ).
**' In 2016, the Nobel Foundation decided that each prize would include roughly 8 million Swedish Krona, or $923,179.20. ' ( http://fortune.com/2016/10/07/2016-nobe … ash-award/ )
The photo above shows Joseph E. Stiglitz, a Nobelist economist, who's aware of the Price Of Inequality ( http://www.nationalmemo.com/weekend-rea … ur-future/ ) . Nevertheless, he doesn't think it's a disgrace that a mere athlete happens to be worth as much as almost hundred Nobelists together are. ( $ 88 million adds up to around 95 times as much as a Nobel award's prize money . )
